Tool to design flanking oligo nucleotides for DNA amplification
Primer3 picks primers for Polymerase Chain Reactions (PCRs), considering as criteria oligonucleotide melting temperature, size, GC content and primer-dimer possibilities, PCR product size, positional constraints within the source sequence, and miscellaneous other constraints. All of these criteria are user-specifiable as constraints, and some are specifiable as terms in an objective function that characterizes an optimal primer pair.
